OK, I know we're all sick of it. The topic of Jose Bautista and his role with the PIrates has been discussed entirely too much. However, that's not what I want to bring up.
I'm curious to play the "what if" game here and get some opinions. Not "what if he was a Pirate", but rather, "what if he'd figured out his swing mechanics at a young age?"
It's well reported that the Blue Jays hitting coach (I think?) had Bautista swing in front of a mirror, which seemed to "click" with him and he became a monster almost over night.
Do you guys think Jose Bautista would be the greatest hitter of this generation? Better than Pujols? Better than A-Rod? It sounds like a wildly crazy thing to assume, but Bautista did hit more HR's last year than Albert ever has and he's on pace this season to possibly eclipse that number.
Would Bautista be in the 400 HR club by 30?
